It is our goal to provide timely and effective customer service to the parents and caretakers we serve. We continue to strive to give you options in how you choose to get information, address your concerns and access our services.

We have a state-of-the-art Customer Contact Center. The telephone number, which can be called from anywhere in the United States, is (866) 901-3212.

Case information is available through our automated system 24 hours a day, seven (7) days a week. Live child support representatives are on duty Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. The best time to call to speak with a live child support representative is Tuesday through Friday, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. We provide services in English and Spanish.

When you call, the automated voice response system will ask you to provide your social security number (SSN) and your personal identification number (PIN). If you do not have a PIN or do not remember your PIN, you will have to request a new one. You can request a new PIN using the automated voice response system or online at I Need a PIN. You may also be asked to provide your Participant Identification Number (ID). You can find that number on many of the letters or notices we send to you. Services are available for our speech or hearing impaired customers through our Tele Typewriter (TTY) number: (866) 399-4096.
